This crackling in the beginning does not seem to be his intention. Maybe it is just in this video?
I agree, it most certainly not was his intention. And the distortion/crackling is not just this song.....its on every song on the entire album.

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

I can understand some digital clipping/crackling purposely put here and there can add some "texture" or "emotion" to a theme or song to purposely make it sound like something is breaking or being crushed..... but when your trying to listen to a great slow balled such as "Mullach A'tsi"....and those ...

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

Ok after a good few days of critical listening...... The guy who "mastered" this album screwed up big time. Im hearing distortions/pops/crackles all over the place and its almost on every song. This album was pushed way too hot.....and the funny thing is, its not even 'commercially loud'. Kinda disa...

Re: My Custom JEM

if your worried about that one little trem tuner overlaping the cavity......

grab yourself a laminate trimmer (small handheld router) and dig out the trem cavity more. Its an easy job if you have a steady hand.

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

the title track is my favorite as well. That song could go for 10-15 minutes and i wouldnt mind one bit! :headbang "The Moon and I" - The more I listen to it....the Soloing takes me back to the old days of "Rescue me or Bury me" soloing from the Sex and Religion Album. The Tone is spot on to that so...

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

I think hes finally got his Legacy amp dialed in now. Ultra Zone was ultra muddy. Real Reflections was better...... but still flabby muddy legacy. This Album with his recent recordings (Story of Light, Velorium, Gravity Storm) show his Legacy is nice and tight now, much brighter and more crunchy lik...

Re: New Steve Vai DiMarzio Set--Gravity Storm

So how do these sound in relationship to other Dimarzios? In your clips, they sound vintage ballsy with a hint of that upper high end "chirpy spike". Almost like a PAF Pro...but the "vocal wah" sound got moved to higher frequencies to give it some brightness. care to share your thoughts on how they ...

Re: Peavey Mini Colossal..anyone have one, whats it like?

i bought one...... and sold it within 2 weeks. I honestly gave it a try, mic'ing it....using the direct outs......and it just didnt do anything for me. for the guy who said "Fizzy, no headroom, no character...."........you hit the nail on the head! It has NO TONE AT ALL. A decent clean tone, if you ...

lemon oil for the fretboard........ lemon oil makes a old dry fretboard nice and moist again. Actually, lemon oil is a pretty common ingrediant in alot of wood polishes, but for the fretboard, i like to use 100% pure concentrated lemon oil. makes the fretboard look like new again. You can find it at...

rubbing alchohol works great......just put some on a cloth, and rub off the grime from the strings........ makes em squeaky clean......... makes a package of strings last way longer, rather than changing them when they get nasty feeling.....just clean em with rubbing alcohol. It wont makes em greasy...
